...If I understand correctly pages I've developed using the OWC control
which came with Office 2000 and which work just fine with Office 2000 and
Office XP, will not work with Office 2003. Correct?

And that the fix for Office 2003 users is to install the OWC 9 control. I
have found the OWC10.EXE on the Microsoft site, but I assume it is for
version 10 and not 9? Where can I find the necessary install which will
allow my clients to view these pages when using Office 2003?

If it is on the Office 2000 (or XP) CD, which file(s) are required? Is
there a separate setup for this? If not then which files need to be
installed and registered for the pages to work correctly?

Will any of this affect the correct operation of Office 2003?

Thanks in advance for your help......RDK

owc9 is only available on office 2000 setup cd. I am not aware that it is
available as a download from the microsoft website.

if you copy the owc9 dll and register it on the client, it should work.
Otherwise you would need to run the setup owc shell.

It works fine !!! Thanks.
You can do for example like this :

Dim oObject As Object
CheckItAgain:
On Error Resume Next
Set oObject = CreateObject("OWC.Spreadsheet.9")
If Err <> 0 Then
Err.Clear
If vbCancel = MsgBox("Setup OWC9 ?", vbOKCancel) Then Exit Function
Shell "Regsvr32.exe MSOWC.DLL"
GoTo CheckItAgain
End If
Set oObject = Nothing
